Hot on the heels of the Gotham trailer, NBC didn’t want to be outdone and has released the first trailer for its up coming series Constantine.
The only thing I knew about Constantine was the Keanu Reeves movie – which I am one of the five people who didn’t hate it. That being said, now that I know differently, having read a few of the Hellblazer comics last year, this TV show looks much truer to the series.
I think comic fans are going to be the big winners for TV. Arrow and Agents of Shield have got another season each. Then the new Agent Carter series, The Flash, Gotham and now Constantine. Is it going to be too much of a good thing? Arrow is my favourite show of the bunch, and Batman is my favourite superhero ever, so will people like me be able to find time in their lives (and hearts) for all these shows? They’re all gonna have to work extra hard to keep our attention, thats for sure.
About Constantine from NBC:
Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight – or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind. But when demons target Liv, the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight,” an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences, is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. And now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world – and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.
From Executive Producer David S. Goyer (“Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight Rises”) and director Neil Marshall (“Game of Thrones,” “The Descent”) comes a dark new thriller that proves fighting evil is a hell of a job.
